1 December 2011 Recording Update
It seems we are not timely with our news updates when we get busy. As mentioned in the June update, this is Olin's fault. The rest of the band really wanted to keep you in the loop but he refused. We are working on this. Anyways.... we are proud to announce that we have drums and lead bass recorded for all of the songs to appear on our next album. In addition, we laid down some great guitar and keyboard tracks for 10 of the 13. Up next is the rest of the keys and guitar followed by vocals. Oh, if you see Olin tell him he needs to quit slackin and keep the website up to date. Cheers, -Vote For Pete(r)
15 June 2011 Vote For Pete Summer Update
Once again, its been far too long since we have updated our site, but it's Olin's fault ALL of it... well, not really.... but yea, it is. Anyways, we've been busy again, working on our third album, and playing some great shows in the Central New York area. We've got a pretty full schedule this summer, so take a look at the list of shows to the right, and check us out! We would also like to formally congratulate Justin and Lisa on the announcment that their first child is on the way! He/she will be giving "Vote For Pete" a great new sound as our first ever one person brass/harmonica section. Thats all for today, hopefully it will be less than a year until our next update! Have a wonderful summer!

On that note, come join us on Friday, June 18th at the Relay for Life event at the Baker High School in Baldwinsville.
